Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

I have a Kodak easyshare all in one printer 5100

The printer is about 7 months old. It has been working fine until last week. I have installed new color and black ink (infact I installed the black ink 3 times last week all were new)
The printer will respond when I tell it to print from my pc a document but there is no print on the paper. If I tell it to print a color picture then it will print but is distorted in color etc.
I have gone in and did a calabration and cleaned the printhead several times but it still will not print any document and the color pictures are still distorted. The paper will run thru and it sounds like it is printing but there is no print. Of course the same thing happens when I try to copy

    Thank you. I already did that about 5 times and it still will not print. Thanks for the # I will try to call. I love the printer but am on a time limit for work so will need to repair or buy a new one.

    printer is less then 1 year old. was working great...a few weeks ago it said to replace the black ink, which I did , twice!!! My pictures came out with a pinkish, lavendar tint on them and I can not print in black..color will print but not the true color. It shows that both inkjets are full.

    Cleaning the printhead, calibrating, all troubleshooting is useless in this case, it simply will not print the black ink at all. See original posts. I ahve this same problem, do I need to order a new printhead?

    Printer is about 6 months old. No longer prints anything black. Everything is grey or distorted color! Have already put in new ink and ran the cleaning operation from the maintenance window several times with no change! Please HELP.

You need to clean the printhead of the printer to solve that

issue. Because everytime you print, excessive inks are going

to the printhead that's the reason why it's clogging the

system up. That's because Kodak printers is using

"pigments" as inks that's why Kodak printers are producing

high quality prints unlike other printers - a photo printed from

kodak could actually last for about 100 years. Now back to

your issue, you need to clean the printhead from the printer

but not manually. You could clean it by going to the

software of the printer namely the KODAK HOME

CENTER SOFTWARE. You need to click the "?" mark

icon on the upper right corner of the software window then

under the General Links select Maintenance then choose

Clean Printhead. Do it at least twice and then try making

prints. If that still doesn't work try calling Kodak Technical

I hope I have been some of help. ^_^

My Kodax easyshare 5100 printer needs to be installed into my new hp TouchSmart300PC. My old E machine died and I have misplaced the disk to installation Kodak. Would you please help me add it to my new...


Going to the Kodak website and download the updated drivers and software for your operating system would be your best bet. Another option would be to connect, at least temporarily, your old hard drive to the new computer and get the drivers off of it but this will not work if you had XP on the old machine and have Win Vista or Win 7 on the new machine.

Most probably the printer that you are using is not set as default, try checking that out from your control panel then try again.

Kodak 5100 will not print consistently


I am currently having the same problem with a 17" iMac Intel Core Duo.  The printer worked fine for a few months, now it will only print in black and white and sometimes in color that is extremely faded.  I have tried every troubleshooting tip in the book and still no luck.

New Kodak EasyShare 5100 will not print!


You might have to reformat your hard drive as there is something in your OS that is hindering the printing.
